About Little Patch

How I started


I initially started Little Patch to sell my unique applique children's wear and home ware however, approx 5 years a go I had to undergo several major operations due to having bilateral hip dysplasia. I was unable to sit at a sewing machine or walk for many years as a result. During this time I taught myself to needle felt. I started with very basic animals and gradually developed my own style and a collection of designs that I sell today. 

I am concentrating on developing my NEW needle felting kits as I have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome as well as many other health problems. I don't want to stop needle felting and therefore I have found a way to combine my love of this skill with teaching others and hopefully inspiring people who are also experiencing pain and health problems to take up this therapeutic craft. I has been incredibly helpful to me and I am eternally grateful to everyone who follows me on social media as well as my customers who have provided me with encouragement and support through my toughest years. 

I am excited for the future and sharing my ideas with you.
